Thinking vs knowing
Sometimes I am scared of the silliest things Thoughts that twirl round and round my mind Like an out of control merry go round I become dizzy as I try to separate my imagination from reality My insecurities prey on me Little by little Until in my frenzied state I surrender and give them free reign Let them dictate my emotions Control my actions Until I am enacting the very thing I fear I am enabling No forcing is the correct word I am forcing my fear to overtake me I tell myself to breathe Focus on my out breath Let all those weighed down thoughts float out into the world Breathe in new air New life New energy Remind myself that I am merely thinking I am feeling Not my reality Rather the reality of the frightened child within I reach for the tiny hand Hold it tenderly within my own hand Placing both hands on my heart Knowing our spirit will fight for us to be free Our soul will guide us in our journey to be true to our destiny.

How strange it is. We have these deep terrible lingering fears about ourselves and the people we love. Yet we walk around, talk to people, eat and drink. We manage to function. The feelings are deep and real. Shouldn't they paralyze us? How is it we can survive them, at least for a little while? We drive a car, we teach a class. How is it no one sees how deeply afraid we were, last night, this morning? Is it something we all hide from each other, by mutual consent? Or do we share the same secret without knowing it? Wear the same disguise?

Wonder if Fran Krause’s Deep Dark Fears collection would count as statements for The Eye in the TMA universe? I mean, on the one hand they aren’t all actual events that happened, but on the other hand they are people’s deepest fears.

I fucking hate how I get so nervous over receiving a simple email or message, or answering a phonecall or videochat. I hate when my anxiety tricks me into thinking I'll fail to communicate my thoughts. It makes me fear saying a single word or sharing too much. But how do I get over it? I'm still in pain.

Fear
We all have things we are scared of Fears Items when brought to mind fill our hearts with an icy dread Lean close Place your ear close to my parted lips Close your eyes Focus your attention I will share my fear The thing that most scares me Haunts me Thoughts of it bring me to tears A sadness that weighs down my heart A burden too heavy to carry within myself Are you ready Are you listening Are you willing to keep this secret inside of you Locked within the depths of your heart You see I also fear the wind catching it Taking it from my lips before it can enter your ear Carrying it away Giving it a life of its own This is my greatest fear The thing I most dread That you will never come to love me as you once did.

I'm terrified of the ocean. I think it's beautiful and magical, but I never go in. That deep, dark water, with no understanding of what goes on behind it - I think that's a metaphor for a lot of things - David Harbour

Happy Friday, everyone! This week I finished our Adulting for Teens series of videos, which made me think of some of my favorite graphic novels about adulting. Read these if you need a good laugh, or just something low-key to distract you from reality for a bit. 
Adulthood is a Myth: A Sarah’s Scribbles Collection: In Sarah Andersen's bestselling Sarah's Scribbles trilogy, she writes with humor and candor about what being an adult is actually like. I particularly enjoy the comics that juxtapose childhood thoughts about adulthood with what it's really like when you're here. It’s been a relief to find that many things I worried about as a kid are not actually a big deal now. 
Super Chill: A Year of Living Anxiously: Adam Ellis writes about such universal adult experiences as bequeathing your collected Bed, Bath, and Beyond coupons to your eldest child on your death bed. And, you know, other stuff that I’ve thought about and maybe you have too, or maybe adult decisions you never even considered having to make, like what happens when you get really into buying crystals. (It was Funkos for me.)
Satoko and Nada: This sweet story of two roommates studying abroad in the U.S. is about food, friendship, and what being an adult looks like when you’re far from home, trying to make new friends, and navigating a new culture. Satoko is from Japan and Nada is from Saudi Arabia, and they’re both college students living on their own for the first time. The first three volumes are out now, and volume four will be the last, which is bittersweet, because I really enjoy these characters, but I also love a short manga in which protagonists learn and grow together. 
Deep Dark Fears: All of us have fears, and this collection (as well as its sequel, The Creeps) prove that becoming an adult doesn't mean outgrowing all your irrational fears. In fact, this book demonstrates that what one person finds scary might be funny to you (especially in comic form). Most of these are so outlandish that you probably won’t pick up any new fears, and I cannot stress this enough: at least reading these comics might distract you from your very real and rational fears about reality as it presently stands. So, rest assured that your reflection is probably never going to come out of the mirror and get you. Probably.
Our Super Adventure: Sarah Graley writes and draws the adventures of herself, her boyfriend Stef, and their four cats. The art here is fantastic, and the series (which is on Instagram and in book form: ALSO THEIR CURRENT KICKSTARTER IS ALMOST FINISHED) is a great reminder that becoming an adult doesn't mean you have to stop having fun. In fact, you get to make more choices about what your life looks like, how many pets you have, and how late you stay up playing video games. (...sometimes you will stay up too late. It happens.)
Be Everything at Once: In these comics, Dami Lee explores being from South Korea and growing up in Texas; pursuing a career as a cartoonist; and what it’s like trying to figure out who you are as a young adult. These comics also focus on travel, dogs, pop culture, relationships, and snacks: in my opinion, some of the most important components of adulting! (And if you follow Dami Lee and other artists on Instagram, you’ll have fun discovering who knows who in real life: sometimes they’ll even show up in each other’s comics!)
What’s your favorite graphic novel about adulting?

Long before the Deep Dark Fears webcomic, Evan Dorkin explored his deep dark fear in his Dork! comic.

Fear A tight metal cage has closed against my heart Its grip relentless Suffocating My very life force constrained I lay motionless My ears ringing with the sound of silence Straining to hear a sound that will signify hope Life My eyesight dimmed by the specked shadows of darkness My imagination taking me on journeys that are best left to the creators of horror movies What started as a mild discomfort Has overwhelmed me I opened the door to fear Rolled out the welcome mat I entertained those thoughts of abandonment Failure Insecurity Pain I mulled them over in my mind Bringing them to life Enabling them to run rampant and capture me My heart lays heavy within my chest I can feel the weight of it beating My eyes try to focus on the shifting shadows Signalling my mind to realise what I fear is yet to arrive I am safe I am safe For the moment.
